Meditation is our magic wonder drug in these modern days, filled with hustle and bustle.
But who has the time to stop and take a few hours off each day to meditate to reap all the benefits meditation brings to body, mind and spirit?
Scientists say, 20 minutes is enough, better twice a day. But how do you accomplish to quiet down your thoughts and get yourself to sit down in a peaceful state of mind? It`s a tough job, really.
Thanks to scientists, who have studied master meditators, we know whats happening during meditation in brain and body. The brainwaves move from a beta brainwave to an alpha brainwave, a relaxed conscious state of mind. In this state our fight- and flight reactions are switched off and the brain is flooded with happiness hormones like serotonin and oxytocin.
You will get into ALPHA state during meditation, it is just a matter of time and training. But how can you get into a deep meditative state when you only have a limited amount of time to spare?
Luckily Princton University Researchers have discovered a simple visualisation technique that pops your brain right into the same state as a master long time meditator without long times of training.
Dawson Church Phd., has refined this process and published a free meditation technique to guide you through the process. You can totally do this afterwards by yourself in a few minutes of time each day.
Dawson Church is known for his breakthrough work in the field of linking emotions and genetics. He is the author of the bestselling book „The genie in your genes“. His EcoMeditation combines the “best practices” from EFT, neurofeedback, HeartMath, and Transpersonal Psychology.

The trick to get into Alpha Brainwave state within 90 seconds is to image a big empty space behind your eyes. Breathe slowly, for 6 seconds per out-breath, and 6 seconds per in-breath. Count to 6 silently each time you breathe in, and each time you breathe out. Notice how relaxed your tongue is. Picture the big empty space behind your eyes. Keep your tongue relaxed.
Try it out, you will feel the difference right away! Enjoy 🙂
